It is somewhat common for a failed power transistor to cause this problem. Locate the ignition system power transistor. It is between the #2 and #3 injectors. It will have a 3-wire connector. Unplug the connector, turn the key on and measure voltage on all three wires. One wire should have battery voltage going to coil negative. It should be located on one of the ends of the connector. The other 2 wires will have very little voltage. The middle wire is grounded. The other wire goes to the PCM. This wire is located on the opposite end of the connector from the wire going to the coil negative. Remove this wire from the connector or the wire can be cut in a location easy to repair, then plug the connector back into the power transistor. Using a jumper wire, attach it to a 5 volt source, such as the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). Jump the 5 volts to the wire that is cut or removed from the connector on the end going to the power transistor. Each time the jumper wire is touched and released, it should get 1 spark out of the coil. The key has to be on for this test. If there is no spark, replace the power transistor.

93 talon tsi getting fuel and spark car cranks but wont start


I would try making sure spark plug wires are put on in the correct firing order. This is a common mistake in tune ups. Most intake manifolds have the firinging order cast in. Plug gaps correct? I cant come too far away.

I have a 97 eagle talon that turns over but won't


The Alternator will not affect spark as long as the battery has enough charge in it. You need to scan the electronic engine control computer (called the OBD2 system computer) with a code reader, if you have no spark there should be a fault code. You can buy a coder reader for the OBD2 system at any parts store for about $50

Kill switch on fuel pump relay switch


If your timing belt is slightly off by a tooth or more it wont stay running. if the cam and crank sensors dont see the same #1 strock at the same time it causes rough running and stalling problems, as for your viper reach under your dash and take the fusses out. this will dissable it.

My 1995 Eagle Talon TSI AWD will not start. I checked my coil packs and starter. It won't kick over. Could it be the fuel pump? Any ideas?


I am guessing the starter turns over, but the engine won't start?

Okay, lets say you are getting spark, and the timing has been checked and verified to be correct, I would check the fuel pressure and the injectors.

Car starts then instantly dies


there is an idle control valve and an air flow meter that should be checked.check all the wiring harness and connectors to the crank and cam sensors.
